This contribution on how to become a tutor comes from Trevor Klee.
Trevor’s a test-prep tutor in the Boston area, and his 20 hour per week tutoring business earns $8000 a month.
The business has given him the time freedom to pursue all sorts of new side hustles, including his blog for current and aspiring tutors, JustAddTutor.com.

A few weeks later a realtor in the family asked me to take aerial photos of a property they had for sale. And they were going to pay me.
